'I discovered my love of clay later than I would have liked but I've always been the creative type! After attending art school, followed by a degree in Packaging Design, I worked in the toy and gift industry for many years. A varied career, that even took me to live in Hong Kong before I met my, now, husband and eventually settled back in England in the beautiful countryside of East Yorkshire.

I always felt a little frustration in my career in design, that I couldn't fully express my creativity, always working to a brief!

I wanted to be free and just 'make stuff'... 'Learn to throw a pot' was No1 on my wish list and as soon as I sat at the wheel, with the clay silkily spinning between my fingers, I was hooked! A few short years later and ceramics is now my full time business and passion (alongside being a mum!). I feel extremely lucky and happy to be able to spend so much of my time doing something that I love so much.​ The entire process, from sticky lump of mud to beautiful piece of finished ceramic is thrilling, challenging and utterly addictive!

My work is a reflection of my love for the beauty of the natural world and the stunning Yorkshire countryside. I also enjoy creating pieces that, hopefully, will make people smile.'
